The Z30's DX-format CMOS sensor with 20.9 megapixels delivers detailed movies and photos even in low light. The electronic image stabilization ensures that the footage does not blur.
Vloggers can record long takes of up to 125 minutes. Time-lapse movies are possible, as are smooth slow-motion shots in Full HD (120p). Continuous shooting at 11fps is feasible with focus and metering tracking. As in its sister models, the camera features eye and animal detection AF.
Audio quality is excellent thanks to the camera's built-in stereo microphone; an external microphone can be connected as an alternative.
The tilting and rotating touchscreen monitor makes it easy to film and shoot from different angles. The deep grip allows stable handheld shooting, even with an outstretched arm.
The movie recording button is located on the top of the Z 30, and settings for movie and photo recording can be stored and recalled separately. Picture Control configurations for 20 in-camera filters are customizable and visible in real time while shooting.
Easy connection and sharing is possible via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with Nikon's SnapBridge app. Constant power can be supplied to the Z30 via the included USB-C cable. Nikon offers the Z30 with various vlogger kits. Only the housing is to cost 799 euros from mid-July.
